About this Section...

Surveys have shown that federal CIOs spend more time planning for security enhancements to their computer systems than any other single work activity. And no wonder.

In the year 2000 alone, the federal government has faced a series of challenges related to the integrity of its computer systems. From missing State Department laptops, to round after round of e-mail viruses, the challenge to build and maintain invulnerable and privacy-protected systems is mounting.

This section of GCN.com, sponsored by Semantec Inc., is dedicated to helping federal security managers and employees stay abreast of the latest developments on this important topic. Please check here weekly for updates.
